+Tihs is a bug in MaxDB, in particular the following definition in
+the  UnsafeNativeMethods class:
+     [DllImport (...)] 
+     public static extern string SQLDBC_ErrorHndl_getSQLState (IntPtr
+The mono runtime will try to free the string returned by the native 
+getSQLState function after converting it to a C# string, according to
+the .NET pinvoke memory management rules. The C function probably
+returns a pointer to non-malloc-ed storage, causing this function to
+crash. The proper fix is to return an IntPtr, and convert it to a
+string manually.
+Please report this as a bug to the MaxDB developers, referencing this
